The Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park in Fell’s Point chronicles African American maritime history. The museum includes exhibits on Frederick Douglass, who lived in Baltimore as an enslaved child and young man before escaping north to freedom. Visitors also explore the life of Isaac Myers, a free-born African American who founded the Chesapeake Marine Railway and Dry Dock Company (where the maritime park is located today).
